Review: This is an OK single track. It's fairly short so you'll want to run it a few times. The trails are not very well marked so they can be extremely hard to follow unless you get to know the area. The trails are located in Wickham Park in Brevard County (2500 Parkway Drive Melbourne, FL 32935). This place can get pretty sandy in areas. Nothing to get excited about but an OK ride on the Space Coast. Wickham Park also has camping spots. I've attached a trail map and map of wickham park to this trail that shows the trails and parking areas.

Review: Rode it the other day or so with family and friend. Trails looked good, flowed well, sugar sand as always in certain areas, especially the north end. Hot as heck out there though. Make sure you do bring water. There is always a grill to cook out on and two lakes to take a cool dip in when done riding.

Review: Went for a ride through the Whicham trails this morning with the dog and found a few trails on the south side of the soccer field road. I havent explored this side too much but found some faster trails that went in and out of tall grass and woods. No sugar sand to be found just grass trails, black dirt and some roots. The dog lost her energy before I did so it was only a 30 minute ride but I will be making it out there a few times a week. Nothing technical just a fun easy ride. The north side of the road has some fun trails as well but only if you make sure to stay in the wooded areas, or else its all sugar sand fire roads.

Review: Great for a weekend ride with the family. Pack a lunch and trail ride all day. Nothing too outrageous, just a lot of technical twists and turns and some amateur jumps. Literally a ride in the park (Whickham park that is). Go riding, swimming at the lake, and have a pick nick.

Review: East side section is ridable, but half of the north end section is still under water or muddy. NE section is dry and still very technical with very tight switchbacks and some sweet bridges. Rode their today and loved it!

Review: I rode at Wickham (well tried anyway) yesterday and it is flooded out there. Got pretty wet and muddy! I recommend waitng a couple of weeks to let it dry out at a little. They say the entire park was pretty much under water, and by the looks of it when I was there, I can beleive that.

Review: Its not bad, a good work out. Their is a lot of sugar sand, some of it just surface. Their are a few bridges, but mostly just a good run on the north end. The east side is great and has shade, but you have to share it with the occasional walkers (multi-use trail). Beware of dog c*** on the east trails, people hold no responsibility toward their animals at Wickham. I live here in Melbourne and this is the only place left to ride besides the "Hochi Min" at the Turkey Creek/Malabar Scrub Sanctuary since the Fort Pierce trails CLOSED. Bring your camel pack if you are riding in the summer, the dogs of the dog days of summer do bite hard out there.

Similar Trail: Alafia, Balm Boyette, Santos, "Hochi Min" at Turkey Creek, Enviromental & Little Econ (in Orlando/Oveido)

Review: I am an Ohio biker who traveled to Florida to visit relatives in Palm Bay in the beginning of April. Since I feel the craving for mountain biking any time it is warm nice weather, I had to check out any possibility for some mountain biking in this almost tropical climate. Well, I stopped at the ranger's station for directions, and still had to go around the entire loop before finally finding the trail. The signage ends at the trailheads. I am shocked I wasn't lost longer than I was. I even hit a dead end at a sewer or something at one point. Very few hills, too. However, it feels kind of like riding through a tropical forest, so that definitely gives it style points. Despite my hope for something a little more hilly, it still quenched my craving for a little bit of mountain biking after a long winter of no riding. Ok for my causes, but hey! it's still biking, and it was sufficient for my purposes. It would have a 2, but those style points gives it a decent 3 in my book. Good enougth that I will go back when I visit again.

Similar Trail: I am from Ohio. 'nuf said.

Review: I have lived here in Melbourne all my life and ride these trails quite often for a decent workout. All these small network of single track bike trails at Wickham are for beginners or just a simple 1 hour or so workout using the network of tracks with some back tracking. Their is most definately no technical with this network of trails except some sugar sand here and their. NO jumps on the east side, except one small sugar sand hill overgrown with shrub and trees. All in all, not bad, just a good work out!

Similar Trail: Alafia, J. Dickinson, Ocala, Ecno. Stuart, & The Ho Chi Min Trail (Turkey Creek) is not bad at all, as it offers something for everyone with a great workout.

Review: This place is mostly sugar sand and palmettos ... I never found any really good trails, I just got frustrated and that was the end of that. Maybe I just haven't found what everybody is hyping about, but my opinion is that this place is a waste of time for mountain bikers. Pretty nice scenery, and a water hole for if you get really really hot, but that's about it.* Review edited 1/22/2007* Review edited 1/22/2007

Similar Trail: Go to Turkey Creek off of Port Malabar Blvd. Turkey Creek is awesome, with a little bit of everything that a mountain biker could want.

Review: I honestly do not know where this guy was riding - I found only sugar sand and palmetto bushes. Some fire roads, horse trails and minor attempts at a trail but the motorized vehicles have found those and completed destroyed what may be a trail. I highly recommend taking the hike to Spruce Creek or Ocala. Although this is in my back yard - I would have to pass on it.

Review: I go to Wickham Park all the time and its always fun. There are so many trails that you can create an endless combination of routes. Its true that there isn't that much technical terrain, but there are a few sweet spots that offer a challenge. On the east border of the park there are some cool jumps that local kids have set up. This is where I always take a newbie to sell them on the sport, and they are always sold. If you get tired of the trails there is plenty of pavement to ride in the park.

Similar Trail: If you want some tough trails full of hills, roots and stumps try Turtle Creek Reserve off Port Malabar Rd in Palm Bay. My second trip with a newbie is to this spot to show them how rough things can get. LOL
